Their CD, For Our Country, recorded in August 2008 at Druide Studios, Ploubalay, France, with production by Jeff The Druid, is a terrific set of songs. In the manner of all good pop records, each element and instrument in the mix is clearly represented in spacious arrangements while adding up to a series of performances by a band of friends in synchronous balance. The clarity of the production, and the combination of musical sophistication and raw rock power, recall an era when pop was epic in ambition and full of references to the classic pop canon.

There are many highlights on the record including Rosey, with its reggae-inspired guitar riff, soulful vocal melodies and beautiful violin solo, and Red Hands with a massive drum sound, slap bass, crystalline keyboards and fluid guitar. Check out Gasp’n gus at MySpace and get the album.

Gasp’n gus are Greg Harrison, Maxime Faisant, Antoine Basile, Julian Urtebize, Vincent Faisant and Mikael Marquet.
